With that comment I'd have to say you're correct in theory. However the reputation as a difficult guy to play for will proceed him and it will be almost impossible to convince better players to go there.
Other schools / coaches have easily surpassed that regime with their ability to get college looks for the kids so if you add up a better education, easier coach to work with, better opportunities to play after high school and the chance to 'win now' not many top end kids will sign-up for X.
Has the coaching change been formally announced?
Father Time might be re-thinking the whole thing. So how was his big 'send off' at BU a couple months ago? No one seemed to cover it, not even the ball-washer who writes for SB Nation.
How is this guy still around? Program is going down the toilet.
You can have CC coach. He needs a job after ruining that school.
They just missed another year to attract / recruit kids. I'd say it is now fully accepted the fact that it is now a football school.
Hello - someone please tell me how much longer until this guy is gone.
Xaverian super 8 this year?
They aren't serious about hockey at X, it's all football all of the time now. How else do you explain losing a full year of recruiting kids by basically forgetting to name a hockey head coach? If someone had been put in place in March the guy would have had 6 months to shake the bushes to find players and comb the rinks looking for kids 2-3 years out. Just another year lost for whomever shows up and 'Old Father Time' hardly has a year to burn so forget that call.
Do they not have a coach?
